OUR PROMISE - KITX

OUR PROMISE

 
KITX PROMISES TO BE AT THE FOREFRONT OF SUSTAINABLE DESIGNER FASHION GLOBALLY, BY CONSCIOUSLY SOURCING EVERY MATERIAL AND COMPONENT. THIS ETHOS GOES INTO EVERY DESIGN WE CREATE TO MINIMISE THE IMPACT ON OUR PLANET’S NATURAL PRECIOUS RESOURCES.
WE ARE COMMITTED TO BEING AN EXAMPLE OF TRUE STYLE FOR THE MODERN GLOBAL ERA, WE SIMPLY DON'T BELIEVE IN QUALITY FASHION THAT HARMS OUR PLANET AND NATURAL ECO-SYSTEMS.
 
3 PILLARS OF SUSTAINABLE SOURCING
 
THREE PILLARS WHICH DEFINE OUR APPROACH TO SUSTAINABLE SOURCING ACROSS EVERY MATERIAL SELECTED FROM FABRIC, BUTTON, CARE LABEL THROUGH TO PACKAGING

NATURAL  
  • SOURCED FROM ORGANIC MATTER
  • DECOMPOSES BACK TO NATURE
  • NON TOXIC
 
UPCYCLE  
MARINE LITTER, DISCARDED POLYESTER
WORKING WITH UP CYCLED SYNTHETIC MATERIALS, ALLOWS US TO AVOID CREATING VIRGIN PLASTICS AND HELPS KEEP EXISTING PLASTIC BOTTLES FROM ENDING UP IN OUR OCEANS. 
CONVERTING PET INTO RECYCLED POLYESTER USES LESS WATER AND ENERGY THAN IT WOULD TO PRODUCE VIRGIN POLYESTER. MOST STUDIES SHOW THAT BETWEEN 33-53% LESS ENERGY IS USED TO CREATE RECYCLED POLYESTER VS VIRGIN. IN ADDITION, VERY LITTLE CO2 EMISSIONS ARE PRODUCED AND WE DO NOT NEED TO USE NON-RENEWABLE RESOURCES (PETROLEUM)
 
 ARTISAN 

REVIVE THE AGE OLD ARTISAN TECHNIQUES, CONTRIBUTING TO A HAND-WORKER ECONOMY TO INCREASE GLOBAL WORKFORCE INCLUSIVITY, IMPROVE WOMEN’S WELLBEING BEYOND FACTORIES, AND PRESERVE IMPORTANT CULTURAL TRADITIONS AROUND THE WORLD. 
KITX IS CONTINUOUSLY SEARCHING FOR INNOVATIVE WAYS TO FURTHER REDUCE OUR IMPACT AND PARTNER WITH SUPPLIERS WHO ARE EXEMPLARY IN THEIR APPROACH TO SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL WELLBEING.
 
REGENERATION
 
WORKING REGENERATIVELY IS WORKING WITH THE INHERENT POTENTIAL OF LIVING SYSTEMS, HUMAN AND THE REST OF NATURE, TO EVOLVE HIGHER LEVELS OF SYNERGY, SYMBIOSIS AND CO-EVOLVING MUTUALITY.
YET WE HAVE DONE SO MUCH DAMAGE SINCE THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION AND NEED TO DO MORE THAN JUST ‘SUSTAIN’ IF WE WANT TO MAINTAIN A HUMAN POPULATION OF MORE THAN 9 BILLION. AS WE MOVE BEYOND SUSTAINABILITY AND START TO WORK ON RESTORING DAMAGED ECOSYSTEMS, KITX IS COMMITTED TO REGENERATING THE IMPACT OF OUR HUMAN ACTIVITY VIA SUPPORTING REFORESTATION PROGRAMS.
FOR EVERY 3RD PERSON SIGNING UP TO OUR DATABASE, KITX WILL PLANT A TREE WITH CARBON NEUTRAL
OFFSET THE CARBON EMISSIONS INVOLVED IN DELIVERING YOUR ORDER BY SELECTING THE CARBON OFFSET OPTION SURING CHECKOUT. 
 
LOVE LONGER
BY DESIGNING WITH INTEGRITY AND WITH THE FUTURE IN MIND KITX IS COMMITTED TO CREATING MODERN AND SEDUCTIVE DESIGN LED FASHION THAT HAS HIGH FREQUENCY DESIRABILITY, LONGEVITY AND 'MEND-ABILITY' RATHER THAN CREATING SHORT LIVED DISPOSABLE FASHION.
 
CARE
REDUCE YOUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT BY TO MACHINING OR HAND WASHING IN COLD WATER AND LINE DRYING. OPT FOR ECO DRY CLEANING ONLY.
MINIMISE WASHING GARMENTS THAT CONTAIN SYNTHETIC FIBRES (POLYESTER, NYLON, POLYPROPYLENE AND ACRYLIC) AS THEY SHED PLASTIC FILAMENTS INTO OUR OCEANS ADDING TO THE 6.3 BILLION TONNES OF PLASTIC WASTE THAT ALREADY EXISTS. 

 
TRANSPARENCY
AS A DESIGNER BRAND WE CARE DEEPLY AND TAKE PRIDE IN THE MANUFACTURING PARTNERS WHO BRING OUR VISIONS TO REALITY. WE CHOOSE TO WORK ONLY WITH SEWING AND FINISHING CONTRACTORS WHO ARE COMMITTED TO QUALITY AND HUMAN DECENCY WITHIN THEIR OPERATIONS. OUR SUPPLIER PARTNERS FOLLOW INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED STANDARDS FOR FAIR EMPLOYMENT AND SAFE WORKING CONDITIONS AND ADHERE TO THE KITX CODE OF CONDUCT.
